    Another neutral Paralympian from Russia, Anna Milenina, who is taking part in her fourth Winter Games, earned silver, missing just two of her 20 shots. Ukraine’s Liudmyla Liashenko finished third to take bronze in the women’s standing 10km event.

    Stability is a sign of mastery. This is my 15th Paralympic medal. It’s an anniversary medal,” said Milenina, who now has taken three silvers in PyeongChang.

    I don’t know what more I can do. The stars have to align. [I can improve] in skiing, the speed, in the shooting. Maybe something didn’t work out today in the shooting, I missed two.
